Lou was amazing!!! Waited for us at airport for over 2 hours with a large sign with our family name. She provided an interesting and educational tour and even took us to some of the best local spots. She was fun, upbeat and when requested to go somewhere (Temple) she arranged it quickly and efficiently. Lou is someone I'd definitely would like to call when I'm back in Brazil.

Half Day In Rio Tour with Luciana (Lou) Morozini. Arranged for Lou to pick my wife and I up at the cruise ship port at 9am. She was early with a large sign with my name on it. She provided a great car and driver. Lou was very informative with history and culture, attentive to our needs, had a great command of the English language and was easily understood. Lou with her contacts provided front of the line access to SugarLoaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer. I highly recommend Lou, thanks!

5 stars Gerry N. 05 Nov 2018

My wife and I can not praise Luciana enough. She was with us for three days. During this time she presented us with a great itinerary. She was very considerate with regard to our age and my wife's mobility issues. We highly recommend her and hope she to continues to do well in her profession.

5 stars Rajeev B. 17 Oct 2018

Luciana was a terrific guide, everything done as promised, very considerate of my needs, able to get past the crowds and long lines with her expertise. Strongly Recommended!

5 stars Neil S. 19 Aug 2018

Had an amazing day with Lou in Rio. If you choose to tour with her, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Personable, knowledgeable, perfect English skills. She worked out a great itinerary, based on my requests. She pointed out things and added explanations that I would never have seen or known about and added details you won't find in guide books. We packed heaps into the day, but it never felt rushed and there was ample time to discuss politics, history & social issues. Highly recommended.

5 stars Stacy S. 25 Feb 2018

Lou provided a custom tour exactly as we had requested. We toured jewish historical sites, an extra attraction was added in as it was 'on the way' of the "Steps" and our experience with the chef and the tour of the marketplace to purchase the ingredients was beyond our expectation. A perfect finish to our last day in Rio de Janeiro. You would be lucky to have Lou as your guide.

5 stars Chris H. 12 Feb 2018

We cannot recommend Lou Highly enough, she was an excellent guide!

When my wife was sick on the first day of our 2 day booking and sent me alone, Lou adapted our itinerary at very short notice so that she would not miss out.

The rio tour covered everything and Lou was informative and knew all the tricks at attractions. We would highly recommend the Favela tour which was one of our highights. Lou is clearly passionate about this and it shows.

Don't hesitate to book with Lou, she's awesome!

5 stars lorraine S. 29 Jan 2018

V good English. Personable and knowlegeable about Rio's culture, history and people.

5 stars Louise F. 09 Sep 2017

Really great guide and best way to see the sights of Rio when you only have a limited amount of time.

5 stars tjeerd J. 26 Jul 2017

We (family of 5 with 3 children from 16-25) had a great time in Rio thanks to our tourguide Luciana. She was very patient, enthousiast and resoureceful, always lookings for solutions that met with our needs, very flexible and very generous with her time. She really gave us an insight of the 'carioca' feeling and way of life, besides showing us the 'must see' icons of Rio. We felt at home , and always safe. Thank you Luciana for an unforgettable time. Highly Recommendable.

5 stars stefanella B. 24 Jul 2017

We used Viator for finding tour guides before and were always very happy. Lou is really good. She has a very good disposition and makes things fun going out of her way to realise your requests and needs. She is charming, very knowledgeable (well prepared in history!) and highly professional. We can only highly recommend her if you want a true Carioca experience. Like she says in her bio, "rent a local friend", true words! Thank you Lou, ate' proxima!

5 stars Larry T. 23 Sep 2016

Lou is quite knowledgeable about her city and very happy to answer questions and make detours. In short, she is terrific and we had an excellent experience and fun with her

5 stars Karyn W. 24 Aug 2016

I had the most wonderful time. Luci looked after me so well and her driver Paulo did such a great job at safely driving me everywhere I wanted to go. The tour was filled with lots of different types of activity and Luci was very giving of her time and knowledge. I would recommend Luci and Paulo to anyone who wants to feel like they are sharing their trip with family, they were so accommodating and friendly. They made my trip worth going.

5 stars Miguel A. 18 Aug 2016

5 out of 5 . Simply amazing Lu was a great tour guide, I booked her for the 6 hour tour in Rio, we were able to customize our tour to our liking. We got to see Christ the redeemer , sugar loaf and the famous steps. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable . She’s very puntual showed up 10-15 minutes earlier than expected and yet gave us ample time to get ready, as we were not ready until after 15 minutes after the agreed time. Speaks fluent english very professional .Comfortable car. Amazing

5 stars george L. 13 Aug 2016

Luciana is an amazing tour guide. She is extremely helpful from booking through to the tour, She went out of her way to show us a great time...avoiding queues...choosing the best photo spots....picking the best food and drink spots. We have many wonderful memories of our time in Rio. Thanks Luciana!

5 stars John S. 07 Aug 2016

Luciana was an excellent guide for our family during the Olympics. She took us to Grumari beach and the surrounding area for the day. Her local knowledge and fun filled facts kept us entertained. We were lucky to book such a good English speaking guide for the day.

5 stars Sunny B. 30 Dec 2015

Luciana was a great tour guide for our one day tour in Rio seeing Christ Redeemer, Santa Teresa, Imperial Palace, Sugar Loaf, and other places. With a big group of 8 adults and 7 children, she did a great job being patient with all our requests and changes in schedule. We were not a easy group and she and the driver were great. The lunch place we are at was great too. She made it a priority to get us in the front of lines, always making sure our children didn't bake in the hot sun. Great guide!!

5 stars Lou W. 12 Dec 2015

It was absolutely wonderful!! What a great guide and driver - We had a delightful day and far exceeded our expectations. They also suggested and took us to a great restaurant for lunch - I would highly recommend seeing Rio in this manner

Thanks again for a delightful day - thank Lou and Darrel

5 stars I.T. H. 30 Nov 2015

Even though my schedule was fairly tight, she was absolutely a woman with a plan. Extremely knowledgeable about Rio's history, great English, found great places to eat. Had everything arranged meticulously without making you feel rushed at all whatsoever. Driver was also very punctual, safe, and reliable.

5 stars Emma G. 21 Apr 2015

We had an amazing time with Luciana.

My parents are older and can't walk too far. So Luciana took us to Sugar Loaf, Impanema Beach and to see the Christ statue from an amazing vantage point. We also visited the restaurant from the Girl from Impanema song, had a beautiful lunch with a view and made multiple photo stops.

Luciana's tour was perfect for our day in port. She was at the terminal early, full of interesting information and very easy to coordinate with.

I highly recommend

5 stars Jeff H. 25 Mar 2015

Luciana and her driver were delightful to be with, her knowledge and history provided a good insight into Rio and Brazils cultures. Great communication from the initial contact and very well organised. She will stand in a queue for you so you dont have to and use her bargaining powers to get you to the front of any lines. We were on limited time due to the cruise ships schedule and the traffic was horrendous but we managed to squeeze in all we had planned. A great 1/2 day out and recommended.

5 stars Roger F. 03 Jan 2015

Most of your ratings have 5 stars so Lu should really get 10. Everything about our experience with her was excellent including:

Timely pickup and a written plan.

An excellent driver named P.C. P.C. dropped us off and Lu called him for pick up. P.C. was always with the car to keep our bags secure. Lu was able to talk while P.C. drove.

Easily understood English with a voice that I could hear.

She took us to the front of all four lines at Sugarloaf.

She arranged a shower for us before flying.

5 stars Charles T. 24 Nov 2014

Luciana is very personable and extremely adept at positioning us so as to avoid crowds at the major attractions. We visited Sugarloaf first and got there before the big tour groups. Those groups arrived just as we were leaving. Likewise, at Corcovado we arrived late in the afternoon after the big tour groups had already come and gone. She is familiar with the personnel at the main attractions which facilitated our entry and egress at the main tourist attractions. My wife uses a wheelchair travel

5 stars Richard H. 02 Oct 2014

After long trip from Australia was very pleased to be met and taken to my hotel . Did 2 full day tours and plenty of opportunity to really enjoy what Rio has to offer. Lou was an excellent host and it is certainly an advantage to wander with a local. Had opportunity to try many local foods and drinks that I would not have had an opportunity otherwise. Lou is able to avoid queues and get best positions for views etc. Ahighlight is Tania the driver who was always ready and waiting with a smile ,

5 stars Brian J. 13 Sep 2014

On short notice, I was lucky to be able to have booked Lou - a 4 hour walking tour one day, an 8 hour with driver for the second. All in all, simply a first rate intro to Rio from one of the best guides I have worked with over the years. Prompt, professional, informed, pleasant (also Edward the driver). We covered the key sites efficiently, including sunset at Christo. Lou gave me the info and advice to plan the remainder of my days in Rio. Highly recommended.

5 stars David T. 23 Jul 2014

Lou planned a great half day itinerary that packed extras into the time we had and got me to the airport on time too!

She'd a rich knowledge of the history and sights of Rio and a great sense of connection with the locals. We'd visited her hometown & stopped at a few other vantage points along the way to our tour of Corcovado & the "Sugar Loaf".

I'd also enjoyed the local Brazilian food & snack she recommended and she really knows her shortcuts...we'd cut the queues at every stop :)

5 stars Elliot M. 05 Jul 2014

Excellent experience! Luciana is knowledgeable guide with very pleasant personality. We had City tour and Favella tour, and Ski Gliding for one of our member. The price included tour guide and separate driver, so we didn't have to spend time finding parking. Definitely recommend!

5 stars Sarita M. 02 Jul 2014

Luciana was on time and came directly to our hotel with a lovely driver and large van. She knew her stuff well and took us to spots we wouldnt normally go! Very informative! Also got us tickets to SugarLoaf and avoided a huge line! Would recommend her to anyone!

5 stars Mark G. 17 Jun 2014

We had 4 days with Luciana and you couldn't ask for better, she has an amazing knowledge of Rio, with lots of fun facts to keep you amused as you travel to your next destination. She has a wonderful, fun attitude to life that is infectious. We discussed with her what we wanted to see and she sorted it out. We couldn't have done the tours by ourselves, she got us in places that we would not have been able to do on our own. We can't rate Lou highly enough, she was terrific. Best guide in Rio.

4 stars Simon A. S. A. 09 Oct 2017

Book this guide!

Lu is knowledgable, energetic and fun!

She is a very experienced guide who seems to know half of the population of Rio!

She, quite simply, made our trip complete.

4 stars Lupe S. 13 Apr 2016

Our tour guide Luciana Morozini was exceptional. She very carefully planned our day so we could make the most of our limited time. Tickets to Corcovado were purchased ahead of time so we did not have to wait in line. Lu is very knowledgeable in Brazil's history and kept us engaged the entire time. She had a lot of patience with our elderly parents as well which was an added bonus. I highly recommend having Lu as your tour guide.
